The Devon countryside as a background, a magnificent barn, June warmth and sunshine, and two blimmin’ cool people getting married is not a bad combination! It’s no surprise then that Jim and Brooke’s Higher Eggbeer Farm wedding was a real highlight of 2019 wedding season!

I have known Jim pretty much all my life as him Mum and my Mum have been lifelong best friends. Along with his brother Chris (who was best man!) they are a family I grew up with and remember fondly going to their house lots as a kid! So it was extra special to be there to capture their day as they became Mr and Mrs Burgess!

Jim definitely wins the award for the best ‘tache going! And Brooke well, she looked stunning in her Lillian West dress, and she wore a smile on her face the entire day. Always full of life!

Higher Eggbeer Farm is a real dream wedding location. You get the whole place for the weekend. Cue party the night before the wedding, and more party time the day after. It means your wedding isn’t over in a flash. You get to enjoy a whole weekend with your closest family and friends. The outdoor ceremony space overlooks the Devon countryside and the barn set-up was amazing (a must see below!). Brooke and Jim did a superb job of making it look fabulous!

These guy smashed their wedding – there were so many funny moments! I will let the photos do the talking!

A big thanks again for having me along Jim and Brooke! Your Higher Eggbeer Farm was bloody awesome!!

If you’re having a fun and relaxed wedding like Jim and Brooke give me a shout! I’m now taking 2021 bookings and love barn weddings!

 

Drenagh House Wedding – Simon & Emma

This blog post is so overdue! I can’t believe I’ve not this sooner but hey ho here we are 8 months from Emma and Simon’s amazing Drenagh House wedding and wow what a day it was! It feels like a dream now sitting here in deep, dark winter! It really was an incredible day and I 100% count Simon and Emma as two of the loveliest people I’ve ever worked with. Emma is also an amazing wedding photographer herself so we have a tonne in common and it’s no surprise her wedding was beautiful, fun, relaxed and an absolute pleasure to document. Together they are both so genuine, kind, thoughtful and upbeat. The best people to be around!

Being from Northern Ireland originally it’s no surprise Emma and Simon chose the stunning Drenagh House Estate near the north coast. They also managed to chose one of the hottest times of 2019 for all of the UK, which for once included Northern Ireland too! (Hurrah!) So we were able to bask in the best June weather anyone could hope for and we didn’t have one drop of rain! Just perfect.

The whole of Emma and Simon’s Drenagh House Wedding was all on the estate which straight away kept the day nice and compact and relaxed. They got ready in the main house and what a mighty backdrop it is. I was able to jump between them both in the morning which I always really enjoy being able to capture both sides of the preparation. Emma looked just incredible in her Sassi Holford dress and Simon smashed the black tie look good and proper! They both made each other cry some happy tears in the morning with very touching gifts for one another (big tip there!)

Their ceremony was so personal, being conducted by one of their friends Andy. The reaction when Emma and Simon met at the front was one of the best moments I’ve ever witnessed. There was so much love and so much feeling. You could see how just special this moment was for them both. The Moon Garden at Drenagh House Estate is a very unique outdoor spot for a ceremony and from a photographer’s point of view was as bit of a dream with lovely natural light. The perfect ceremony!

The rest of the day was fun and relaxed! We had some hilarious, and emotional, speeches on the grand staircase inside the house and outside the guests were able to feed on Tato crisps (what else when in Ireland!) and play garden games in the sunshine. The wedding breakfast was held in the walled garden and all the details were so well thought of by Emma and Simon (they have a really good eye for design!). Being the end of June it didn’t get dark until 11pm (so cool!) but we managed to finish the night with some of my favourite festoon light portraits ever (see below!) Just magical! The party was epic and everyone had an absolute blast!!

Emma and Simon – you were a dream! I am still so honoured I was able to be your photographer and truly know you have such an exciting future together as Mr and Mrs Reeve. Thank you for taking me to Northern Ireland (my first time!) for your Drenagh House Wedding – I absolutely loved it!

I hope you all enjoy these Drenagh House Wedding photos and reliving this awesome day! Over to the photos now!!


This was an awesome awesome wedding at the amazing Pittville Pump Room in Cheltenham. The day was brilliant all round! I love travelling, as a Surrey and Sussex based wedding photographer, across the UK for weddings.

Pittville Pump Room is a great place for a wedding – big, bright and with fantastic staff. The grounds are fantastic. Lots of open space for photos too. And then there’s the iconic pillars which provide a fabulous backdrop. I would definitely recommend the venue to any brides looking for a Cheltenham wedding venue.

Leila and Nabil had their ceremony and reception at the Pittville Pump Room. We had the most amazing June day for it. The sun shone throughout – it was a classic English summer’s day. When you book a June wedding it’s what you keep every finger crossed for!

Leila was a fantastic bride. So relaxed and calm. And so stunning in her dress.

The day went so well. Nabil and Leila looked so happy throughout and there was a real buzz amongst their guests. Everyone was having a great time and soaking up every moment.

I’ve known Leila for a few years and so it made the day a little extra bit special! Nabil is a top gentleman and between them I was so lucky to photograph their Cheltenham wedding.

Thanks to Dean Govier for shooting with me on this one. A great friend and fellow Sussex wedding photographer.

Here is a little selection of my favourite Pittville Pump Room wedding photographs from the day! Enjoy!
